    Andrée Putman, Hall of Fame Legend, Dies at 87

    Andrée Putman, the late Parisian design icon and Interior Design Hall of Fame inductee, began her career in the late 1940s and has left an indelible mark across several continents. She died at her home in Paris today with her family at the age of 87.

    The industry responded with an outpouring of love and respect. Designer Karim Rashid said via Twitter, "I knew her well and I think she had a great life. Eternal love to her." French architect and designer Fabio Novembre Tweeted, "Andrée Putman, glorious designer, and such a Lady! R.I.P my dear!"

    Putman's interiors include chic designer shops, trendy boutique hotels, art house films (Peter Greenaway's The Pillow Book), the Bordeaux Museum of Contemporary Art, and even the Air France Concorde. Her daughter, Olivia Putman, who now runs Studio Putman, recently helped to answer questions for the magazine's "Where Are They Now" series by referencing quotes provided by her inspirational mother over the years. Read the feature and view a roundup of Putman's projects here.

    A funeral for Putman will be held on Wednesday, January 23, at Eglise Saint-Germain-des-Prés at 2 p.m. She is survived by her daughter and son.
